I have to give a HUGE shout out to Lacey over at Objects and Events–> she posted about Iherb.com, which I had never heard of AND she is paying it forward by supplying a discount code. The super amazing fabulous good news is this: THEY HAVE LARA BARS for $20/box!!!! I have yet to find a place near me that sells Lara Bars by the box, so yeah, it took me all of about 3.5 seconds to make a purchase! I also picked up some free samples while I was there 🙂 My total with S&H was under $20. Score, score and score!!! If you want to check it out, I would also like to pay it forward; I have a discount code for first time buyers: IDE178. Happy Shopping 🙂
Three Things Tuesday- Vacation Edition
Flying Alone– This is my first time flying alone and I won’t lie…I am totally nervous. I am not the world’s best flyer to begin with and being alone makes me even more jittery. I don’t like taking off, and I always worry about who is going to sit next to me. I am space hog and I like a window seat. I am flying Southwest and I paid the extra $10 to board early in an attempt to secure a window seat but it is just like me and my Type A personality to already be stressing. Additionally, it never fails that I end up next to the guy who spits when he talks, the kid behind me who will kick my chair or the woman who put half a bottle of perfume on. I know I will be fine as long as I remember to breath.
Making the most of it- This is probably the most jam-packed trip I have ever taken. And I love it! I am looking so forward to everything we have planned. I know it is going to be busy and I am sure when I return home I will need a vacation from my vacation, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Save the ta-tas- The whole trip began with a simple email between myself and the Redhead. I had thought about going to Ft. Lauderdale for the A1A half-marathon which is also this weekend and asked if she would like to join me. She responded that she had the Donna Half-Marathon planned and then within a few more emails I decided to also do this race and the trip was being planned. I am running in honor of my Mom-Mom, a two-time breast cancer survivor and one of the strongest women I know. My Mom-Mom is what being a survivor is all about. I look forward to crossing that finish line in honor of all survivors and in memory of all those who unfortunately lost their battle. And there is more to love about this race: 100% of race proceeds and funds raised are donated to breast cancer research. Hopefully, we will see a cure for this horrible disease sooner rather than later!
